Unfortunately we’re having to cancel the broadcast tonight, our timing with Ellie and her feedings is just way off tonight and she needs her mom and dad! There’s a lot of stuff that we’ll be able to talk about later:

  • TWSBI 540’s and ROC-100’s and italics to arrive tomorrow
  • 4 new Pilot Iroshizuku inks
  • 40ish new De Atramentis inks we’ve brought in
  • Kaweco Classic and ICE Sport nib units
  • New Noodler’s Ahab flex pen colors
  • New Platinum Kanazawa Maki-e pens
  • Timelines for new stuff like TWSBI VAC-700’s, new Diamine inks, orange Pilot Custom 74, and even more De Atramentis colors like select Historic Person inks
Sorry to cancel at the last minute, it’s family first tonight 🙂

  • I won't be able to make it to ask, but I hope somebody might note here if there is a timeline or update for the Noodler's Konrad.

     Just talked to Noodler's this week, we're looking at sometime in March. No exact date yet.

    Will the TWSBI 540 clear demonstrators be available with 1.1mm nibs on them? Or do we still have to buy a separate nib unit to get the 1.1mm? Speedy said the 540's would be available with the 1.1mm on them at purchase. I have yet to see it.

    What time are the TWSBI Italics coming in?

     Everything's in stock now, we put them online around 1pm or so.

    Thanks 🙂  Order made.

    Out of curiousity, I compared the TWSBI nib from my 530 to my recently purchased Leventer L-Tech.  The nib in the 530 looks identical to that in the L-Tech.  I assume that they're made by the same third-party manufacturer.  Do you know what other pens share this same nib format?

  • They're nib units assembled by Schmidt. In addition to Levenger pens like the one you have and the TrueWriter, it is my understanding that at least one Franklin Christof model uses the same nib unit.
